Mission Statement

We, the members of the Ventnor City Police Department, are committed to safeguarding the community through enforcement of the law and faithful service to the public without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, gender, social status or political affiliation.

We promise to respect, honor and defend the rights and liberties of the people as enumerated in the Constitutions of the United States of America and the State of New Jersey. We will pursue and bring to justice any person or group of persons who would bring harm to a member of the community, visitor to the city or member of this department.

We recognize that our authority is derived from the people we serve and will endeavor to maintain the confidence of the public by discharging our duties in a lawful, professional and compassionate manner. We cherish the public trust and will, through due process, remove from our ranks any member who would breach that trust by means of unlawful, immoral or other improper conduct.

We will work cooperatively with other public agencies, schools, businesses, civic associations and community organizations to foster and maintain the highest quality of life, promote commerce and encourage good citizenship in Ventnor City. Finally, we welcome community input and participation in pursuit of our everlasting mission to maintain peace and uphold justice in the City of Ventnor City, New Jersey.
